About me


Are you experiencing a difficult feeling such as anger, confusion, guilt, stress, panic, anxiety, depression or a sense of loss?

Or perhaps things may not feel right in your life at the moment, and you cannot pinpoint why. Or maybe an important relationship feels in crisis?

Talking confidentially with an experienced and accepting counsellor can provide a really helpful space to reflect and work through your situation.

Counselling is an opportunity you might like to take - to set down the load of whatever is troubling you, and for us both to explore it together.

I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental and safe space for my clients. I bring my true self into my counselling, so whilst maintaining professional boundaries and ethics, I am able to connect with my clients on a warm, human level.

I aim to help clients gain a greater awareness of the burdens they carry, and indeed, to recognise their strengths and self-worth. Often with deeper understanding and acceptance comes the potential for change.

I can meet with you for an initial assessment session, to decide between us if counselling feels right for you. If we decide to proceed, I usually suggest a review after 6 sessions, and then further sessions with 6 weekly reviews as required.

Contact me today for a no-obligations chat about how counselling can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • 2015 Accreditation, British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • 2012 BSc in Integrative Counselling. Middlesex University
  • 2008 Diploma in Integrative Counselling
  • 2006 Certificate in Counselling Skills

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and I am bound by their code of ethics.

Continuing my learning and development as an Integrative counsellor is very important to me, and I have previously attended workshops or courses on Art Therapy, Couple Counselling, Child Protection and Substance Misuse.

Previously, I have been a counsellor for the organisations Mind, Women's Aid and Mentis Tree CIC. This experience means I have an increased awareness of how our relationships, past and present, can shape who we are today.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
